Welcome to Café Thyme

     Eddie Osborne, Owner of Darn Good Food, LLC,  has operated Café Thyme at Powell Gardens since 2013.  They offer a small, seasonal menu with an emphasis on fresh food. Café Thyme features fresh produce from the Heartland Harvest Garden, the nation’s largest edible landscape, and other local producers.  They make it easy to “Eat the Rainbow”, as the wraps and salads are made with your choice of fresh fruit and toppings.  They gladly offer vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options.

Ever mindful of being good stewards of the Earth, Cafe Thyme recycles, composts, upcycles and offers food scraps to small scale chicken and pork producers.
